Where there's smoke...

And there's a lot of smoke around here today.  Ash is flying, smoke hanging in the air and even making it's way inside. 

While we aren't in the path of the fires or in any danger, I do have friends who are.

Normally, I keep my personal things off the blog...unless it's writing related, but today I'm asking each of you to take a few minutes and say a prayer for those who have lost their homes or loved ones in the recent wave of fires.  Also, remember the firemen and women who are standing between the fires and the homes of all those folks out there at a risk to themselves.

Texas is really, really dry right now.  Lakes and ponds are a fraction of the size they used to be.  Grass is brown and crunchy.  Ranchers and farmers are in terrible shape right now and it doesn't seem to be getting better, especially with the fires.

I know things are tight right now, but if you can find a few bucks in the budget, here's a place that could really use them.  Texas Wildfire Relief
